Importer from Abe's Thanks mod (vB3 / vB4) and vBSEO "Likes" now available in Lite version!



Major Features: Lite

Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.

Collapsable postbit stats: Shows how many button clicks a person has given, received etc in the postbit. Admins can determine what statistics can show in the postbit to control sizes etc. The postbit is also collapsable.

Admin Permissions: Control things such as who can click buttons, require button clicks, what shows in postbit, what options can run concurrently, per forum permisions etc.

Reputation: Add / Remove Reputation for each of your button clicks.

Notifications: Receive alerts when a member clicked on one of the buttons for one of your posts.

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 and vB4 versions of this mod.

Import Likes: Import script to import "likes" from vBSEO.


Major Features: Pro

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

User Postbit Config: Lets users decide what postbit stats they want to see.

Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Integrated Controls: You can now integrate the button clicking controls into the post footer, like many of you requested.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash? Colour thresholds let you change the colour of posts depending on how many clicks of a button they receive. Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

Hi, thanks for plugin.

I'm running an Arabic forum. RTL layout of the plugin was fine, until I upgraded from v2.0.1 to v3.0.0b6. The product icons now appear over the text (that is: thanks like, dislike). It seems like a CSS issue. I attached a screenshot below for reference.

Tested on Chrome and IE8.

Thanks!

Not for the Lite version, only a Pro feature was added. We don't send update emails or post changelogs about Pro features

If there's no changelog, there's no changes.

Is it safe to downgrade from 3.0 to 2.0 ?

I have no idea if downgrading will work. We will not be able to provide support if you downgrade, only the latest version is supported

I downgraded successfully from v2 to v1.x and everything was fine. So, I couldn't be 100% sure, but most likely everything will be ok.

i use language encoding Window-1256 for my language file
when clicking thank/like button .. it shows as scrambled text
������� ���������

after refreshing it shows as normal text , so i am thinking it has something to do with ajax encoding file ?


+ pluse +

can i suggest new improvment to this Mod ?

* similar to Youtube ( thumb up/down ) = for every post
* and ( like/dislike ) green/red bar = for thread starter

the look of this mod as it is right now doesn't suit the new generation of forum users ..

people want this


not this

Thanks.

I confirm that downgrading from v3 to v2 has been successful.

You need to ensure that your database and language is using the same encoding. We recommend either keeping iso-8859-1 (which works with every conceivable language and system) or switch to utf8 in both places.

That'd be hard if not impossible, since the Pro version can have an unlimited amount of buttons, not just Like and Dislike.

What code should I use to manually show "Total Thanks" and "Total Dislikes" in postbit?

I don't want to use the collapsed info.

Could it be applied to likes and dislikes only? Or maybe apply it to thanks only - such as the Thanks meter in XDA forum.
